#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 113 # Debutant movie – Neelima-1975
——————————————

‘Neelima-1975’ is making its debut on the blog today. Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. So, we are adding one more Shankar Jaikishan movie on the blog today.

I do not know from where I got it into my mind, but whenever I went through HFGK Vol-V and came across this movie name ‘Neelima-1975’ I had an impression that this movie must have already been covered on the blog. But now it is clear that this movie is yet to be launched on the blog.

‘Neelimaa-1975’ was directed by Pushpa Raj for ‘A.A.N. Productions, Bombay’. It had Zaheeda, Vinod Mehra, Sonia Sahni, Ranjeet, Anjali Kadam, Shahzaad, Nazeer Kashmiri, Rafia Sultana, Sahay, Aarif, Sami, Asgar, Qaiser and others. Anwar Hussain, Suresh, and Sunil Dutt make a special guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.09.1975.

This movie had total three songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan as per details given below;

Song Lyricist
Hamaara yaar hai, ham hai, muhabbat hai , jawaani hai Majrooh Sultanpuri
Tum agar pyaar se dekho to mazaa aa jaaye Anjum Jaipuri
Tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi main wahi, mujhme sanam kya nahin Majrooh Sultanpuri

Today’s song is a duet song in the voices of Mohd Rafi and Aarti Mukherjee. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri (I think I am first time coming across this combination, or maybe I had come a song by them but now I am not remembering it).

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I think that this movie ‘Neelima-1975’ must be an obscure and forgotten movie.

I would request knowledgeable readers and those who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs and their picturization. (though video of one song ‘tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi’ is available on internet.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song … after listening to the song it sounds familiar and maybe I have heard it on radio earlier. I hope readers will enjoy the song too. 😊

With this song the movie ‘Neelimaa-1975’ makes its debut on the blog.

13/10/2020 – 33rd death anniversary of Kishore Kumar
——————————————————————————–

Today is that day when we all remember the phenomenal Kishore Kumar. I should have planned ahead, but could not do so. Firstly I am working on so many posts at once that it is becoming a blur what is done and what is not. Secondly, I was under the weather for the whole weekend, and antibiotics make me more blurred than anything else.

Well, a post is to be done so one must look for a song. There are scores of songs to choose from. I have thought of a song from “Kaaran”, but I found today that it is already posted. Next I thought of the song from Poonam(1981) “main hoon haseena khol darwazaa dil ka”, which is not posted, but it turned out to be Amit Kumar’s song. It is possible for me to confuse Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar songs, as both sing in the same style and have similar voices. For example for a long time I was under the impression that bade achche lagte hain from Baalika Badhu is Kishore Kumar singing.

Then I looked for songs in the year 1980, thinking how there were so many songs which Kishore Kumar sang with Mohammed Rafi sahab. There was a pattern there where songs of major film in 1979, 1980 and 1981,in movies like, Shaan, Abdulla, Dostana, Naseeb, Karz, The Burning Train, Jaani Dusham, Kaala paththar, Raajput, The Great Gambler, Aap ke deewane, Aap to aise na thhe, Aas Paas, Bulandi, Ham Paanch, Raam Balram, Swyamvar , Kaalia, Khuda Qasam, Deedar-e-Yaar etc. were divided among the two of them.

Not specifically looking for Rafi-Kishore song, almost decided on a background Kishore solo from “Apne Paraaye”, which is a sad song, with everyone crying (there are many characters including Shabana Azmi) except Amol Palekar, who is smiling in his inimitable way. This is a “afsardaa” or a despairing category song.

But I moved beyond this one too and have landed on a song from “Zabardast” (1985). I am glad to be listening and viewing this song. I have not seen this movie either, but it was a multi-starrer of a kind and four of those stars are present in this outdoor picnic song. What with school kids carrying colour full flags, school bus, Rajeev Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri with an umbrella as a prop, Bagpiper like music in the interlude, and two cars on Table land of Panchgani.

Give me such songs anytime, I prefer these type of songs to club, party or dance songs. The song starts with Rati Agnihotri and Rajeev Kapoor arguing on Table land, Sunny Deol and Jayaprada march in with the school kids carrying flags. Sunny Deol hands over the white flag to Rati Agnihotri as a peace offering and Rajeev Kapoor starts singing the song. The Umbrella prop is visible throughout.

Song is a solo by Kishore Kumar, entirely sung on screen by Rajeev Kapoor, who is trying to woo Rati Agnihotri. Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada are also present and looking on. A good, catchy and feel good song, composed by R. D. Burman and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This movie is making its debut here with this song. Out of total 2709 songs recorded by Kishore Kumar 1209 are posted in the blog.
A tribute to the ‘harfanmaula’ on this Remembrance Day.

Song-Jab chaaha yaara tum ne aankhon se maara tum ne(Zabardast)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Blog Day : 4467 Post No. : 15958

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s date(10 cctober 2020) is rather unique. Fellow ASAD follower Satyajitji, from down-under, pointed it out. 10102020- “never before, never again” was the reaction to that from another regular follower of the blog. Of course it is a “unique arrangement of the numbers that form the date which is appreciated by our brain”. A true statement by our in-house encyclopaedia.

Today’s post is a rather difficult one too. Never before have I faced such a dilemma. It is a case of too many options. I sifted through a whole lot of songs before I made a choice.

The song features a heroine who was not so great-looking when she made her debut in 1970. She was extremely ordinary. Very gawky. She has said in many of her interviews that she was very uncomfortable wearing all those funny, awkward dresses and costumes. She was not happy doing the dance steps she was made to perform. She was cast opposite heroes old enough to be her father- she was hardly 13 or 14 when she made her debut. She didn’t have an elder to guide her in choosing films like her contemporary Hema Malini who had her mother with her at every stage in her career.

Her first film was not in Hindi though; it was in Telugu as a child actress- not one but two- one as a 4-year old in 1958 and next in 1966 when she was 12. Her next film was in Kannada with Dr. Rajkumar as the male lead in 1969.

But she accepted all that came her way. She has survived in an industry where fortunes change every Friday. She learnt the art of perfect make-up first. Then followed it up with some strict regimen and went from gawky to gorgeous. She was already good at emoting and dancing she just polished them up and learnt from her job and gave it all she had. For some of her heroes she was a lucky mascot and sure route to success whenever their career hit a few flops. And Jeetendra has said this in so many words once. And she doesn’t tire of admitting that if given a second chance she will love to walk the same path again.

I need not specify that I am talking of Bhanurekha Ganesan who is popular as Rekha- the sweet heart of a whole generation of moviegoers. There was a time when Hema Malini was my personal favourite as also the favourite of a few of my classmates. Then I saw “Khoobsurat” 1980 (I don’t tire of telling this) following it up with “Agreement” “Jal Mahal” and the best of the times-“Umrao Jaan”. “Umrao Jaan” was the best in terms of acting, direction, songs and small wonder that she was awarded the National Award for the best Actress for that year. I had seen a few of Rekha’s movies prior to “Khoobsurat” too but most of those movies had her playing the typical film heroine where she just had to look an eye-candy flutter her eyelashes, sing a song too and scream her way through. But she was earnest in all of those too.

She was cast in many two-heroine movies like “Nagin” (this had more than two heroines), “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Ram Balram” etc. She was heroine to actors of the 60s- Raj Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Biswajeet, Deb Mukherjee, Sanjeev Kumar (I am sure I am missing a few) and actors who made their debut in the later years of the 60s- Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan etc. She has also paired with Navin Nischol (hero in her debut film), Anil Dhawan, Randhir Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, even Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty. Some actors who were her fans as youngsters also got to be her hero- Anil Kapoor (another ageless wonder who has done two with her), Akshay Kumar for example. But Rekha herself did movies with Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand (whose fan she was) rather late in their careers. She was Shashi Kapoor’s Vasantsena in “Utsav” and Rakesh Roshan’s avenging angel in “Khoon Bhari Maang”.

Sorry I can go on and on and people will say a fan is at work here. But I cannot get enough of her and when I chanced upon this video of Hema Malini’s 70th birthday I was supremely pleased as it gave me both my favourites in one video. Such a lot of camaraderie between the two beauties, difficult to choose who is more beautiful

Getting to today’s song, it is from a movie which was directed by Manmohan Desai. As per the tradition of Manmohan Desai movies we have Randhir Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha as brothers who get separated as children. Both like the same girl but the girl likes the simpleton from the village who has respect for even a night-club dancer. I shall not give the story of the movie will just give the name of the movie- Rampur Ka Laxman.

Wishing our ageless diva a very happy birthday with this song which shows her in one of those costumes that I spoke of earlier. It doesn’t compliment her and that hairdo was the standard which all heroines sported back then. Plus not to miss the kilos of makeup that she had on. If my memory is correct this was a song at the birthday party of the character played by Rekha and we have Sulochana (who was the mother of the heroes playing Rekha’s nanny), Roopesh Kumar, Raj Mehra, and a smart young looking Ranjeet (who is waiting in the wings for spoiling the party).

Song-Arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan (Rampur Ka Laxman)(1972) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyon mere yaar
maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

jo bhi kare pyaar
main uska yaar
ghalat mujhe na samajhna
main to yahaan
aaya hoon milan ke liye
main subah shaam sabka ghulaam
itna magar yaad rakhna
bura hoon main
bas dushman ke liye
ulfat ke jo pyaase ho tum
chaahat ka hoon mai nbhi sawaali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise waha
kyon mere yar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

abhi ye sama hai meharbaan
jhoom ke jeele deewaane
kaisi ee haaye mastaani raat hai ae
zindagi ka lele maza
phir kya ho kaun jaane
bhaai mere ae
kuchh na tere haath hai
do char pal lehraake chal
hai zindagi kab rukne waali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

khel hansi aadat meri
chup rehna main na jaanoon
maine yahi ab tak jaana nahin
tum bhi mere
tum bhi mere
sabko apna hi maanoon
par ye dil sabka deewaana nahin
aur jispe hai deewaana dil
uski ada sabse niraali
pyaar ka samya kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

Recently, I came across on internet an offer for sale of an used Extended Play (EP) record of the songs of ‘Aaj Raat Ko’, the film which I had never heard of. The EP was released in 1975 by Polydor India Ltd which had 4 songs – 2 songs on each side. All the songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which were set to music by R D Burman. On checking these songs on one of the video sharing platforms, I found that all the 4 songs were uploaded in audio format. The songs were in the typical mould of R D Burman’s compositions. In one of the audio clips, a record-cover photograph was displayed with a couple of scenes from the film showing Saira Bano, Sujit Kumar and Vinod Mehra. I could not locate the full film on-line.

The description given by the uploader of the audio clip revealed that the film, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ remained unreleased for reasons unknown. Probably, one of the reasons could be the sudden departure of Vinod Khanna who was one of the main actors in the film, to join Rajneesh in the USA. The film was revived when Vinod Khanna returned from USA in 1985. It got Censor Board certificated on January 25, 1988 under a new title ‘Faisla’ (1988). According to a comment recorded by the son of the producer of the film on the video clip of one of the songs, his father, the producer suffered huge losses due to unprofessional behaviour of some actors and the film was delayed by 13 years. According to him, this film never got released in theaters and was ultimately sold to distributors for paltry sums. The film was released on satellite television.

‘Faisla’ (1988) is now available for watching on one of the video sharing platforms but the print is so bad that images look blurred. There is loss of continuity in some places as a result of which the story in the film looks disjointed. The songs in the film are muted probably on copyright ground.

‘Faisla’(1988) was produced under the banner of Noor Jahan Films and was directed by S Ramanathan. It was a multi-cast film with Ashok Kumar, Saira Bano, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Mehmood, Sujeet Kumar, Chandrashekhar, Ranjeet, Gajanan Jagirdar, and Bindu forming the main star cast. It is a typical Bollywood film catering to the expectations of the type of film audience who loves masala films having action, dance and comedy, villain etc. As usual, in such type of film, the story ends with victory over the evils.

All the 4 songs which were in the original film ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR) have been retained in ‘Faisla’ (1988). I am presenting the first song ‘champa khili daar palak jhoole pyaar’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi and picturised on Vinod Mehra. Saira Bano is also present in the song sequence. Fortunately, video clip of the song is available in which the song starts with humming and two lines of the song rendered by Asha Bhosle who sings for Saira Bano. The audio clip does not have the humming by Asha Bhosle and is also shorter in terms of duration than the video clip as there is no repetition of lines of antaras. While the audios of the songs have been released under the original title. ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975), the video clip of the song has been taken from ‘Faisla’ (1988).

One can make out from the voice of Mohammed Rafi that song was recorded sometime in early 1970s. During the same period, Mohammed Rafi in combination with Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman had also rendered songs of the same mood, like ‘goriya kahaan tera desh re’ (Caravan, 1971) and ‘gori ke haath mein jaise ye chella’ (Mela, 1971).

With this song, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR)/Faisala (1988) makes its debut on the Blog.

“Nai Raahen”(1959) was produced by Devendra Goel and directed by Brij Sadanah for Goel Cine Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Geeta Bali, Anoop Kumar, Shubha Khote, Nazeer Hussain, Madan Puri, S K Prem, Radhakishan, Neelambai, Haroon, Mohan Choti, Nandini, Umar Khan, Baby Leela, Baby Nazma, Nazeer Kashmiri, Chanda bai, Nirma Kumar, Tushar etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from ” Nai Raahen”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Only audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, it appears that the song is picturised on two ladies. One is dressed as a male and is lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice while the other lady playing her lover is li syncing in Lata’s voice.

This song is a rare song. The movie had four lyricists in it. It is the only song penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri in the movie. Other songs were penned by Shailendra (3), Gopal Singh Nepali (2) and Prem Dhawan (1).

With this song, Majrooh Sultanpuri now has 1100 songs in the blog as a lyricist. He is only the second lyricist (after Rajinder Krishan) to touch this mark in the blog.

—————————————————————————-
Mujh se kaha jibrayil e junoon ne ye bhi vahi-e-ilaahi hai
Mazhab to bas mazhab-e-dil hai baaqi sab gumraahi hai

The Angel(of obsession) tells me that this too is divine decree,
The religion of love is the faith, rest all is deception

Dekh zindaan se pare, rang-e-chaman josh-e-bahaar
Raqs karna hai to phir paaon ki zanjeer na dekh

Look far away from the dungeons, towards the colourful garden and spirited spring
Want to dance (fly), than don’t be bothered by the limitation of feet.

Bahaane aur bhi hote hain zindagi ke liye
Ham ek baar teri aarzu bhi kho dete

There could be other reasons to live
Had the hopes of you been lost.

Jafaa ke zikr pe tum kyun sambhal ke baitth gaye
Tumhari baat nahi baat hai zamaane ki

When there is talk of unfaithfulness (or deception/tyranny), you are alert.
This is not about you, but lamenting is for the world at large.

Bacha liya mujhe toofan ki mauj ne warna
Kinaare wale safeena mera dubo dete

The tall waves of the storm have sheltered me, otherwise
the idle waves of the coast were bent on sinking my (last)boat.

Rok saktaa hamen zindaan-e-balaa kya majrooh
Ham to aawaz hain deewar se chhan jaate hain

Can the darkened holes of adversity stop us Majrooh
We are those sound waves which pierce the walls

Zaban hamaari na samjha yahan koyi Majrooh
Ham ajnabi ki tarah apne hi watan mein rahe

No one understands the words we speak, Majrooh.
We stayed as outsiders in our own homeland.

tujhe na maane koyi tujh ko iss se kya Majrooh
chal apni raah bhatakne de nukta-chinon ko

Don’t bother if they believe you or not Majrooh
Go on your way, let those critics wander around

There is no better way of describing a poet and paying tribute to him, than quoting some of his work. So the major part of this post is going to be taken up by Majrooh sahab’s sukhan or kalaam. Today is the 101st birth Anniversary of the poet from Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, the state in India which is the known as the ‘gehwara’ of urdu civilization. There are great shua’ra from other parts of the country, but those poets will also agree that UP is essentially the cradle of urdu. Like all children, the ‘khari boli’ urdu has also grown up and left the cradle. So that other children may enjoy the same nourishment and contentment that urdu had in its childhood.

Maybe some caravan’s upped and left the homeland and took their belongings. The cradle did not want to go away from the roots, so they took the embellishments and the toys from the cradle, and left if bereft. But some of the old dolls and some pillows were not taken with them as there was not enough space. They remained with the cradle and they strived to make the gehwara, the playground of urdu. Majrooh Sultanpuri is one of those old pillows which graced the old cradle.

After all this sentimentality, I don’t wish to write more. I have written a few posts about Majrooh and so have other contributors, in the past. So I will let his poetry do the talking.

I am reproducing one of his famous ghazals here :

Jab hua i’rfaan to gham aaraam-e-jaan bantaa gayaa
Soz-e-janaan dil mein soz-e-digaraan bantaa gayaa

Rafta rafta munqalib hoti gayi rasm e chaman
Dhire dhire naghma e dil bhi fughan bantaa gayaa

Main akelaa hi chala thha jaanib e manzil magar
Log saathh aate gaye aur kaarwaan bantaa gayaa

Main to jab jaanun ki bhar de saaghar e har khaas o a’am
Yun to jo aaya wohi peer e mughaan bantaa gayaa

Jis taraf bhi chal pade ham aabla-paayaan e shauq
Khaar se gul aur gul se gulistaan bantaa gayaa

Sharh-e-gham to mukhtasar hoti gayee uss ke huzoor
Lafz jo munh se na niklaa daastaan bantaa gayaa

Dahr mein majrooh koyi javedaan mazmoon kahaan
Main jise chhutaa gayaa wo javedaan bantaa gayaa

The song with this post is written by Majrooh sultanpuri, and the music director is Anu Malik. It is from Akele ham Akele Tum (1995). Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik are the singers. Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala are the actors in the film, who are singing it on screen.

This is the fourth song in the ‘inspired/copied’ song series. The inspiration behind this song is “The Godfather theme” .

During the tough months of April/May, someone posed this quiz in the family group on whatsapp :

“What is it that connects, The Godfather, Arvind Swamy and Anu Malik ?”.

This song is the answer to the quiz.

Blog Day :

4456 Post No. : 15932

In this article, I am discussing a classical dancer for whom the dancing was her passion, be it in the films or on stages. Her face was familiar to me as I had watched some of her films long back. But at that time, I did not evince interest in knowing her name. It was only after I joined the Blog in 2011 that I came to know her identity through none other than our own Prakashchandra ji, the veteran of our Blog in identifying the lesser known film artists with a high success rate. The name of the dancer is Rani.

Even after knowing her name, I still did not evince keen interest in knowing Rani’s background and the filmography. Like many lesser known film artists who worked in a few films and then went into the oblivion, I thought that Rani was one among them. But when I watched many Hindi film songs while writing my last four articles on the Hindi film dancers. I was surprised to note that Rani had danced with well known Hindi film dancers like Helen, Kumkum, Ragini, Madhumati, Bela Bose etc apart from her solo dances. This gave me an impression that Rani may have worked in more Hindi films than what her filmography on the various on-line sources indicated. After collating the data of her films from various sources and watching her dances in the films in case of doubts, I have come to a tentative figure of 54 films in which Rani had danced.

I was not sure about getting much of Rani’s background profile. However, recently, Tabassum who had worked with Rani in about half a dozen films in the 1960s, has posted a video ‘Dancer Rani – A Life Full Of Struggles’ on her Channel ‘Tabassum Talkies’. After watching the video, I felt very sad for Rani as in her later years, she has struggled a lot for her basic necessity of life. The Almighty has not been kind to her as now she is handicapped. It is really a pathetic situation for a dancer who used to say that dancing on the stage was like a worship for her and dancing in the films was means of her sustenance;

The following information has been paraphrased based on ‘Tabassum Talkies’ on Rani.

Rani (real name: Munawwar Sultana) was born in July 27, 1942 in Kolkata to Mohammed Gafoor Khan and Noorjahan Begum. She was adopted by her father’s close friend, Mohshin Khan who had no children. Since Rani was interested in dancing, her adopted father put her for training in Kathak under the tutelage of Ram Narayan Mishra and Krishna Maharaj of Lucknow Gharana.

At the age of 13, Rani started her filmy career in Bangla films. In 1960, her adopted father brought her to Mumbai to make her the Hindi film heroine. Rani flatly refused to work in Hindi films as an actor – not even in supporting roles as she was very passionate about dancing. So, she started her Hindi film career as a dancer in ‘Nai Maa’ (1960). Thereafter she got regular dancing numbers in many Hindi films mainly during 1963-69. In the 1970s, Rani’s dancing career went in downward mode and by the end of 1970s, she was almost unemployed.

During her active period of Hindi film journey, whatever she had earned was passed on to her adopted father to look after a large number of relatives who depended on her earnings. But in this milieu, a thought never occurred to her that she needed to save money for later period in her life when her dancing career in the films would come to a close. Due to failure of her love affairs when she was in Kolkata, she had decided to remain unmarried.

With almost nothing left for her subsistence, she met her former dancer colleague and the choreographer, Gopikrishna who took her as his Assistant Choreographer at a salary sufficient to take care of her minimum requirements.

As they say, when chips are down, one gets to face more problems. One day, Rani suddenly felt that her legs have lost stamina and she can no longer dance. She started using a walking stick and with this, her days of dancing were over. But her old age woes were not yet over. While catching a bus, she lost balance and fell, badly injuring her legs. She was no longer able to walk even with a stick. Instead, she now requires a walker.

As Rani was handicapped and there was no one to look after her, she got herself admitted to a charitable old age home at the outskirt of Mumbai. Presently, she is 78 years old and is an inmate of an old age home.

Rani had a younger sister, Rashida Khatoon who was a qawwali singer. She got married to Yasuf Azad Qawwal.

As I mentioned earlier, I have listed around 55 films in which Rani had danced. Some of the major films she worked were ‘Maaya’ (1961), ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), ‘Mere Mehboob’ (1963), ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’ (1964), ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964), ‘Jaanwar’ (1965), ‘Dil Diya Dard Liya’ (1966), ‘Sangarsh’ (1968), ‘Sambandh’ (1969), ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1970), ‘Loafer’ (1972), ‘Pathar Aur Paayal’ (1974), ‘Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahi’ (1977) etc. Most of her other films were of B grade category in the genres of stunt, action and costumes.

Rani also worked as Assistant Choreographer to Gopikrishan in ‘Khubsoorat’ (1980), ‘Aanchal’ (1980) and ‘Kudarat’ (1981).

From our Blog, I could track down 20 songs of which 5 songs are yet to be tagged to Rani. In addition, at least 4 songs, the video clips of which are available are yet to be covered on the Blog. I am hopeful that some more songs would be found on video sharing platforms. However, there are some films of Rani which are not traceable. To that extent, her dance numbers in these films are as good as lost for the present.

I am presenting Rani’s dance song, ‘bairu bichuaa bada dukh de o ram’ from ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964). This is a classical raag-based song picturised on kathak trained dancers, Kumkum and Rani. Lata Mangeshkar sings for both the dancers. The song is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which is set to music by Chitragupt. The end of the song is followed by a dance competition between the two dancers of about one-minute duration.

This is the 6th song (out of 8) of ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964) to appear on the Blog.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

tu..u..u
mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
tu..u..u
mungdaa ha mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
aashiq apna
mungdaa mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 69
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was covering six songs every day and seven songs every fourth day. So I was a bit surprised to note that “only” five songs were covered on 3 September 2010. But there awsa very good reasohn for that, which will become clear during our discussion here.

Here is the list of the five songs that were covered on 3n september 2010:-

Blog post no Song Movie-Year remarks
2896 Ab to aa jaao balam Poonam 1952 YIPPEED
2897 Kaare badraa tu na jaa na jaa Shikast 1953 YIPPEED
2898 Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khuda khair kare Khoobsoorat Dhokha 1959 4 Songs discussed out of 7
2899 Saamne ye kaun aayaa dil mein huyi halchal Jawaani Deewaani 1972 YIPPEED
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa Hum Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 Blog century post. 7 songs discussed (out of 9)

We can see from the above that three out of five movies that were taken up on 3 september 2010 have got YIPPEED in the bblog by now. So that leaves us with just two movies that are eligible for “Blog Ten Year CHallenge” today (3 September 2020).

“Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) is one of those movies. I notice that this musical blockbuster movie had made its debut in the blog on 3 september 2010. And thatsong that was discussed was a century song for the blog ! And the song was the National Aawrd winning song Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa . A movie making its debut in the blog with a blog century song ! It shows the musical calibre of the song in general and the entire movie album in particular.

Music lovers are unanimous in agreeing that “Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin” (1977) had a stunning array of songs, that have remaiined popular to this day.

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven of them have been covered in the blog so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post no Song Date remarks
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa 3 september 2010 Debut song of movie. Blog century post
5892 Ye ladka haaye Allah kaisa hai deewaana 28 April 2012
8454 Chaand mera dil chaandni ho tum 2 August 2013
8628 Hai agar dushman dushman zamaana gham nahin 2 August 2013
13400 Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya 5 July 2017 Blog century post
14162 Aa dil kya mehfil hai tere kadmon mein 13 March 2018
14833 Mil gaya ham ko saathi mil gaya 10 January 2019

We can notice that another song from the movie, viz Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya was also a blog century song. And the writeup of that song was a special writeup by Sudhir Jee. It gave details of the musicians who were involved in creating that musical masterpiece.

When the name of this movie crops up, my mind immediately goes back to the second half of 1977. My Matriculation examinations were due in February March 1978 and like a sincere conscientious student that I was, I was seriously busy preparing for that Board Examination of Bihar State Board. Those were the days when I had no distractions. The last movie that I had watched in a movie hall was “Zindagi Zindagi”(1972) in 1972 and after that I had not watched any movies in movie halls.

There was a radio set at home, a big valve radio, but that was out of order because mice had made their home inside the warm cozy cabinet of the TELERAD 4 band radio and had damaged the valves. And my father had very wisely not bothered to get the radio repaired. So no radio commentary and no Radio Ceylon and Vividh Bharati distraction either.

But filmy music blaring out of loudspeakers was a distraction no one could guard against. These days we talk of noise pollution and disturbance to people because of loudspeakers, but no one bothered those days. Playing film songs on loudspeakers in full volume day and night, no matter what, was the norm in those parts of India. And what was the movie whose songs were the most popular with those loudspeaker playing enthusiasts ? “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin” ! I would be trying to concentrate on my studies and my eardrums would receive songs of the movie one after the other. What rubbish songs these are, The standards of Hindi movie songs have gone to the dogs- These were the thoughts that crossed my mind while receiving constant bombardment of songs of this movie.

Fortunately, the songs of this movie failed to distract me from my studies and I was reasonably well prepared when the final exams were held in early 1978.

Having appeared for the examination, it was time for the results. Marks obtained in the examination determined which college one joined. St Xavier’s College, Ranchi was the coveted college not only for Ranchi, but for entire Bihar. Getting admission in this college was considered a matter of prestige.

I had gone to my native place after the examination. I received a letter (or was it a telegram )informing me that I had passed in first division. Detailed marks would be known only later. My father, who was also there in the village, discussed this matter with a distant relative of his, who was a progressive villager and also the headmaster cum only teacher of the only Village school. We must go meet Father XYZ of the school ABC, the progressive villager suggested. So we went some six miles by walk, and met the Father. Our distant relative informed him that this kid, his close relative had passed Matriculation examination in First division. He needs to get admitted in Ranchi’s St Xavier’s college. You know the principal of that college, so please write a letter of recommendation. The father was reluctant saying only first division may not be enough, percentage of marks also matter. But repeated insistence by my relative forced him to act. He took out a small portable typewriter (I had never seen such a modern looking typewriter) and typed out a letter. He then took an envelope, sealed it after putting the letter inside it and on the top addressed in to the Principal of St Xavier’s College. We thanked him and went back to our village.

When I went back to Ranchi and got the detailed marksheet etc, I got the form of St Xavier’s college, filled it and submitted it there. My father had decided that the recommendation letter would be used only in case I failed to get admission on my own.

When the first list of selected candidates was put up on St Xavier’s College notice board, my name was very much there. So there was no need for that recommendation letter. Nevertheless, my father opened the letter and read what was written in the recommendation letter. We found out that the father had written a very nice letter highly recommending my case for admission. But I was happy that we did not have to use such means (sifaarish) to get admission.

After I got admission in the college, I got “freedom” under the impression that I had matured being a college student. I used this new found “freedom” quite irresponsibly, I must say. I started to watch movies by bunking classes. It was in this movie watching spree that I watched “Hu Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1979) during its second run, in 1978 or 1979, in a movie hall called “Sandhya” which was located on the same road where my college was located. By that time I had warmed up to the songs of this movie. I did not find the movie any great shakes though. I did not think then that Rishi Kapoor was really a better dancer than Tariq. I had my sympathies with Tariq.

Much to my good luck, I somehow survived by the skin of my teeth academically despite acting so recklessly. Today I have become so “mature” that I cannot spare time to watch most movies. How I wish I had some of my present “maturity” during late 1970s as well. 🙂

Today, exactly ten years after “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) made its debut in the blog, here is another rollicking song from “Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin”(1977). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, with Asha Bhonsle chiming in towards the end of the song. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Kajal Kiran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Here are the details of these six songs from six movies:-

The movie had 8 songs in it. The movie made its debut in the blog ten years ago. Five songs from the movie have been covered so far as detailed below :-

Ham jaan lutaa denge apni saajan ki jaan se pehle 23.10.2015
Main hoon gori naagan 30.112015
Le ke sahaaraa tere pyaar ka 04.04.2017
Gori naagan ban ke na chalaa karo 23.05.2018

Here is the sixth song from “Naache Naagin Baaje Been” (1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This song is puicturised as a dance song where a lady is seeen wooing her beau. When I watched the lady dressed in Maharashtrian style sari, I thought that she looked familiar but who was she ? Lyricist sender Prakashchandra also sends details of the song and the movie, and he had mentioned this song as picturised on Helen and Agha. Me bad ! One does not expect Helen to be dressed in a sari and one often struggles to identify her when she is dressed in Indian attires. 🙂

Prakashchandra has sent the lyrics (as mentioned above) while Avinash Scrapwala has sent the BTYC related details.
